    Creatine vs. Whey Protein

    I know that it is better to use these two products together but unfortunately they are damn expensive. If I had to choose between the two, what will give me the best results? What brands should I use?

    well if you're trying to add lasting mass, use the whey protein. You should do some research and order your own custom protein from the **************. I suppose if your just trying to look good for the summer, go with the creatine -ProLab's is my favorite.

    I'm 16 years old and don't want to use steroids or anything that isn't safe and don't want to put on fat. Any suggestions?

    it's almost impossible not to put on some fat... but protein is more important than creatine... creatine is great... but protein is #1... creatine wont build muscle, protein will... creatine will only help...

    its not that expensive. Its only 9 dollars for a months worth of creatine from eas. Protein isnt that expensive if you buy the right kind either.

    why don't you buy protein that already has creatine in it?

    Met-Rx Mass Action has creatine,HMB,and TMG. I had also heard that Creatine competes for absorption with Glutamine but nobody had any proof. Studies have found that the combination of protein and carbohydrates increases insulin release and consequently muscle creatine absorption to the same extent as high carbohydrates alone.

    that's why I said you also need carbs... but creatine + whey ends up costing alot more than if you by the two seperately in the long run... plus i can customize how much protein and creatine I want in my post-workout shake...

    theres no way that you can do a comparison wich is better.
    for starters protein is a must to grow you cant take in 200grams of creatine you know what im saying creatine will help you grow but it aint something you need its great to have but not as important as protein.just mho

    Creatine and Protein together

    I have read that the two should not be taken together. They will fight each other for absorption. I think if you can afford protein, then you can afford both protein and creatine. Higher Power Creatine 1000 is an excellent choice for very cheap.

    Good luck...

    Big Cat wrote a great article on Creatine
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/catupdate.htm

    He writes, "The reasoning behind the myth is that both nutrients require the same calcium transport-ion."

    So I guess that answers my question on absorption.

    100% whey from optimum nutrition is a great low calorie protien.....120 calories in 22g of protien...this will give you the protien and help you from putting on fat
    this is pretty cheap too if you buy it in the right place

    He say's it is a myth. So he doesn't see a problem with taking creatine and protein together at the same time.

    why not buy creatine and get your protein from regular food?

    creatine uptake is best when taken with 50grams protein and 50+ grams of high GI carbs.
